Assessment is an everyday, ongoing, integral part of teaching, not something separate from life in classrooms. Clasroom Assessment: Concepts and Applications focuses not only on testing, grading, and interpreting tests and performance, but also on the practical concerns of organizing a classroom at the start of school and planning and implementing instruction. This is the most teacher-friendly assessment textbook available; one that future teachers will keep in their professional libraries for years to come.
